On your first visit to Georgia Eye Physicians and Surgeons, Drs. William Segal or Marc Lay will meet with you to perform an initial eye and vision examination. Eye exams will screen for specific eye problems such as glaucoma, cataracts, presbyopia, and infections. During your first consultation, Drs. Segal and Lay will walk you through filling out forms and thoroughly discuss your medical history. After the exam, Dr. Segal or Dr. Lay will sit down with you and discuss diagnoses and treatment of any eye or vision problems to maintain healthy eyes and good vision. If needed, they will also perform careful, precise measurements for glasses and contact lenses.
If your exam results require you to have eyeglasses, contact lenses, LASIK surgery, or any other service, your eye doctor will educate and walk you through available treatment options as well as the diagnosis and exam results. Drs. Segal and Lay understand the eyes are a vital feature and encourage patients to ask thorough questions. Routine eye examinations and care are highly important and it is necessary to discuss your goals and eye care with your doctor.
Unlike office visits, which should be routine for check-ups and to order new eyeglasses or contact lenses, office consultations are conducted when new or established patients have their first visit or a transfer of care. For example, a family physician may refer a patient with an eye condition to Georgia Eye Physicians and Surgeons where our board certified ophthalmologist and licensed optometrist can closely evaluate the condition and form a proper treatment plan.
